Several months ago Dave Brethauer did a video showing how to watercolor a die cut made from paper napkins.  I found that quite fascinating and decided have a go with this technique using my new Hero Arts paper layering poinsettia.

Following Dave's guidelines I die cut the poinsettia and leaves and did some watercoloring.  I did have a bit of a problem with the napkin layers separating after they were wet but a little glue solved that.  Put my flower together and added it onto a snowflake dry embossed background with the little sentiment.  

I am entering my card in the Color Throwdown challenge although my colors are not quite as vibrant as theirs.  Am also entering this in Virginia's Show and Share for December.

A new challenge begins tomorrow at A Blog Named Hero - check it out and join in the fun to be eligible for a gift certificate from Hero Arts.

Wishing you all a very blessed Christmas and much happiness and joy this holiday season.
